Case Study Leopold Schäfer GmbH

Leopold Schäfer: Less providers, more performance

The Situation

December 10, 2019 was a day of cesura for many carriers as the technical support of the operating system windows mobile ended. The software was an important basis for countless mobile devices which were used for telematics functions. But without support there are also no further security updates or other adjustments. Because of this, the CargoLine partner Leopold Schäfer decided to use android devices in the future. Next to the hardware, also the software for the mobile order management had to be changed.

The Task

The expediter took the chance to also reduce the number of providers. “In the past, we used for the inventory turnover and the mobile order management solutions from different providers which increased the administration efforts”, remembers IT administrator Valentin Rötten. In the course of the change from windows to android, Leopold Schäfer also changed its mobile order management and decided to use the solution TISLOG mobile Enterprise from TIS.

The Project Implementation

To distribute the investment costs to a longer period, the old windows devices will be replaced step-by-step as soon as they reached their technical end of life. At the moment, 45 scanners were already replaced. Ten more devices will follow. “Every new device leads to an easier administration as TIS offers the comfortable function TISLOG Mobile Device Management (TISLOG MDM)”, explains IT administrator Valentin Rötten. “Though the TISLOG MDM, updates can be done for all devices at the push of a button”, describes Rötten.

The Benefits

Simplification of processes through the use of android
Reduction of providers
Simplified administration of devices thanks to TISLOG Mobile Device Management
